CARNIVAL CRUISE LINE RETURNING TO BALTIMORE WITH CARNIVAL PRIDE

Carnival Embarked Guests from Port of Baltimore on May 24

Carnival Cruise Line reports  Carnival Pride resumed sailing from the Port of  Baltimore on May 26, continuing the cruise line’s year-round homeport schedule.

Carnival Pride arrived in Baltimore later in May, following a week-long cruise that embarked in  Norfolk, Va., where Carnival temporarily moved its Baltimore operations after the collapse of the Key Bridge on March 26. The ship’s next sailing, a 14-day  Carnival Journeys cruise to Greenland, is expected to sail round-trip from Baltimore. The ship will then continue its previously planned  sailings, currently scheduled into the spring of 2026.

“We are extremely grateful to the officials and incredible first responders in Baltimore, who’ve shown great leadership and resolve in this difficult time, as well as our supportive partners in Norfolk, whose rapid response allowed us to continue to deliver our scheduled sailings for our guests,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “It’s been our goal to resume operations in Baltimore as soon as possible, and after working closely with local, state and federal agencies, we look forward to a successful return.”
